Putting water into a nose piercing during wudhu

Q: During wudhu, is it necessary to put water in the nose piercing (hole), and then twisting the nose stud? Or when one washes the face 3 times is this sufficient. I usually drip water on my piercing and twist the stud but sometimes I forget to do this and get worried in case my wudhu was not valid and if wudhu was not valid then the salah was also invalid.

A: If water will reach the inner portion of the nose hole without you twisting the stud, then you do not need to do this. However, if the water will not reach, then it will be necessary for you to ensure that water reaches.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
